The Standard Oil lawyors evidently neg. leoted to coach Agent Gulp, of the Louisville and Nashville road. Before the Interstate Commissioners yesterday he unwittingly gavo tho whole schemo away. His testimony, intended to favor the oil monopolists, leaves no reasonable doubt that the.rnost outrageous discrimination in vtiri ous forms has been practised by his road in defiance of the law. This is only a sample case. There is every reason to believo thnt the other roads complained of are equally guilty of breaking the law in favor of the monopoly. Now, Messrs. Commissioners, off with your gloves. The peoplo want no gingerly work work in these cases. It is a squoro fight between tho law and tho monopoly. If tho former is not strong enough to prevail, it will bo reinforced in quick metre. s A PREJUDICED OLD LAST. What a lot of trouble would have been averted if Mme. Jcmbl, who died in 1866, had only willed her extensive property di. rectly to the lawyers. It was certainly very inconsiderate on her part to mako them scramblo about for over twenty years to so. cure possession of her estate. Moreover, she was exceedingly unjust to all concerned, for it now appears that claims for counsel fees not only eat up the entire property but threaten to ruin the unfor tunate heirs. Mme. Jurai, was evidently a person of old-fashioned prejudices, who took delight in placing obstaoles in the path of tho legal fraternity. THE W TTJJ-B MEMORIAL. What has tho Poet Wmrrnsn had to do with the office-holders that tho Essex Club, of Boston, should prepare a memorial for his eightieth birthday, to be signed exclusively by the State and nntionnl officials ? Why should the cominittco " deem it boBt to with, hold the text of tho memorial from the public until after its presentation ?" WnrmxB is not and novor was the poot of tho offico-holders. He Is and has always been distinctively tho poot of the people. He Is of the masses and not tho classes. Tho WmrriKB memorial tributo should bo a broad-based and popular ono, befitting the character of the poet's verse, voicing, not merely tho sentiments of club men and office holders, but tho graceful appreciation of tho people at large. THE DREADFUL DAT AFTER. A day of feasting Is glorious while it lasts. But It is the dreadful "day after" that brings Nemesis to tho front. It is ungracious to preaoh moderation at such a time. But if thoso who eat and drink at the Thanksgiving dinner about twice as muoh as Is good for them will follow this simple recipe they may escapo somo of the worst of the stomaoh's revenges: Not another mouthful aftor dinner until to-morrow. Feast and fast. Tux Wobld entertains its nowsboys at an old-fashioned Thanksgiving dinner this afternoon. There will bo a mysterious dis appearance of a phenomenal amount of tur key and " fixings." The devouring element, so to speak, will bo on hand. Police Capt. Gunnkb testifies that during a period of soven months he never saw Patrol, man Class, of his squad, whon not under the Influenoo of liquor. Glads: has doubtless been kept on tho forco on account of his regular habits. The Old Colony Railroad proposes to gobble the Boston and Providence road In the Interests of harmony. This is tho sort of " harmony " that exiBts between the lamb and the lion when tho former is inside tho latter. It appears that tho new Chaplain of the Seventh Regiment, though Southern.born, did not, as roported, serve ia the Confederate army. He had an excellent war recordJu the Union army under Gen. Hancock. Booth and Babrett will not devote thoir proposed New York theatre wholly to legiti. mate drama. Thore aro just soven too many letters in legitimate to suit many theatre patrons. On goes the merry war against tho bucket, shops, while the gambling Exchanges still thrive unmolested. A terrible straining at the gnat ; the camel is swallowed at a gulp. It is to be hoped that the portrait which Artist Healt, of Paris, is painting of Mr. Blaine will be more satisfactory than his Presidential canvass. - Does tho dismembered turkey yearn for sympathetic company I Let him hie to the football game to-day.

Tho boys I ''jRrSwTfHw' wcro nH hungry a littlo nI mi i mV army as was over gath- 6 'orcd. When thoy at tacked tho eatables furnished them on orders, thoy went at the soups, meats and turkeys as if they had a contract to devour everything in sight or in tho kitchen below within nnhotir. Tho newsboys wore fed in the large main dining-room that extends from Vesey to Barclay Ktrcet. The roetm had ben hand somely decorated with flags and flowers. It contained 100 tables and five boys sat at each table. Only COO lads could be fed at a tlmo. When tho first COO had eaten until they could not eat another crumb, they gladly mado room for tho hungry COO who were massed In tho street, wnitlng for their chance with commendable patienco. The boys behaved themselves. They forgot their pranks In their eagerness to fill their stomaohB. Never bofore in their lives had they seen so many good thirigs to eat at their disposal. They fairly paralyzed the one hundred waiters with the orders they gAYO. THE NEWSBOYB AT PINNEn. "I'll tackle the whole business," cried a curly-headed chap, whoso overcoat was a muslin shirt. "Glvo Yallorand mo bluefish, turkey and rabbit on toast," shouted a black-eyed boy of ten, whoso bare feet rested on the round of a chair. " Put ovcrythlng you got on this table, and hurry up," ejaculated a crippled boy, who had dropped his crutch under the table. The din that tho industrious purveyors of tho newspapers made with knife and fork could bo heard in Washington Mar ket. Many of the boys, however, threw their knives aside and pitched in with their hands. Hoveral times during tho feasting the little fellows proposed cheers for The Would. Tho hoarty re sponses mode tho dining-room ring. Crowds of pooplo blocked up the sidewalks of Vesey and Barclay streets in an attempt to get a glimpse of the novel sight of newsboys banqueting. Hundreds of peoplo begged for admittance, The feast began at 1.30 and the last crowd of COO was not through until 3.30 o'clock. The bill of fare was as follows: sours. Moo Turtle. Tomato with Idee.

As early ns 11 a. m. the boys began to as semble in Theatre alley in the rear of The Wobld building. Thoy had previously been furnished with tickets for tho dinner. Hero is a copy of tho ticket held by James Lyons, of Park street : j No. 65T. i ; Ticket for a THANK8U1V1N0 DINNER ; Given to tho : I Newsboys of New York ; bj The World at Hotel BveretU j Meet at Wobld office, Thunder, Nov. st, : : at noon. ; At 12 M. thoro were over n thousand boys in Theatre alley. l'hoi,o who could not obtain tiokcts wore told to get in line. Tho 1,000 tickets had been all distributed before noon. It was decidod, however, not to permit a boy to go without a Thanks giving dinner. When those who had upplied for tickets were told that they could ?o along with their comrades, many a little ellow wbb made happy. At 1 o'clock the 1.200 boys formed a solid mass thnt packed Theatre alloy from Ileekmau street to Nassau street. Preparations wore being made to Karado to tho Hotel Eerett. A ne baud of niubio firmed and the boys gave tho musicians a rousing reception. AVhen tho boys were formed iu line, two by two, tho signal to start -via given and tho hungry army of urchins began, the march. Tho route was through Bcekmau street to Park How, to Chambers street, to Uroadwnv.to Mail street, to Park ltow.to Vesey street, to Hotel Everett. As the bovs pasned The World office thev cheered, blew horns and waved flags, which hundreds of them carried. A large bnuner had this inscription : " Evening World's Thanksgiving Dinner for Newsboys at Hotel Everett." Tho uniquo procession was witnessed by crpdn of peoplo. The boys v ere frequently cheered lythe specta tors. A procession of over ono thousand new sboys was never before been iu New York. The only break in tho ranks occurred at Broadway and Chambers street, where a gentleman throw $10 worth of sil ver change among tho boys. Lino was broken, nnd there was a tug of war for a few minutes. One hundred boys were in a few seconds piled up together and in the scrimmage that followed heads, legs and arms were seen in a confused mass. Mr. Everett received the boys upon their arrival, and did everything in his power to serve the guests of The Wobld. Diamond Minnie" Fined. Dora Wilson, known ttons times "Diamond Minnie," was arraigned et the Jefferson Market Conn this morning, on the charge of disorderly conduct.

Upper Broadway night before last was in that mellow and complacent frame of mind which is tho usual accompaniment of Thanks, giving week. It laughed and joked and did its best to be happy. A timid. looking boy crept out of tho shadow of a hallway and touohed a man on thesleovo. " l'lcaso, sir," ho plcadiid, " I'm so hungry I Glvo me a few pennies." The man stopped. " Hungry eh r " ho said, gruffly, shoving back the boy's hand. "Yes, sir; oh, so hungry! I haven't had anything to cat all day I" " Haven't, eh V" The man looked ns though he would annihilato the boy on the spot. " Hungry! Well, Jt pever refjiso to.listn to the voico of' htinser. Como with mo to a restaurant, and I'll fill you up so full that you can't walk." " Oh, thank yon, sir. But but I'd rather have tho money. They'ro hungry at home." " They are. eh ? Well, I'll seo about that after I've filled you up." Thn man's fnco was a glowing picture of Thanksgiving charity. Man and boy went into a res. taurant. " Here, waiter," said the map, " give this boy all that he can eat, and bring the check to me." In a few minutes the waiter camo up and said that tho boy could not eat, because he wns not hungry. A policeman was Bont for. " Do you know this boy ?" asked the man. " I know him woll," replied the police, man. " He's n professional beggar, and his folks aro doing timo oil the inland." " Take him out into the street nnd cuff his ears uud let him go." Last night at tho same hour, when tho same man was walking along the same part of Broadway, ho was accostod in thn same manner by a boy who wanted pennies be. cause he was hungry. " Oh I" said the man, " so you're hungry, too, ore you ?" " Yes, sir. " walled the boy. " I ain't had nothin' to ent since yesterday." " Oh, you have'nt ? Well, come with me. and if you're hungry I'll fix you up in shape," The man turned an ay his face to hide a smile of fiendish glee. In the same restaurant the man said to the same waiter : " Give this boy all that he can eat, and bring the check to me." The waiter closed his left eyo with a smile. At tho end of half an hour he brought tho waiting man a check for $2.76. " How's this?" gasped the man. " Hoy was hungry, Bir." replied tho waiter. "Genuine case of hunger, sir. Boy must havo been starved for a week !" - - AN INCIDENT WITH A MORAL. A nistreeelnc Accident Tlefklls n. Young YVe mnn on a Ferry Beat. A young, pretty and stylishly dressed young woman peacocked aboard ono of the Jersey Central forry boats at Jorsoy City to-day. Hho had just como In on a Philadelphia train. Sho woro a tight-fitting, ground-sweeping ulster, such as tho ultra-fashionablo women now uso to show off the graceful lines of the figure. Bohind, and below the waist, was a bump that Barnum's rescued camel might havo envied. The lady tossed her pretty head and swung her skirts with a " please, admiro-my.bustlo " air, and entered th'o cabin. At that moment a wonderful transformation appeared. Those who were following her saw the ulster subside for at least two foot. The camel's hnmp had disappeared as If it had been a bubble oollapsed. The painful silence of a moment was broken by an eleven-year-old bey, who rushed up to the lady, touched her on the arm, exclaimed: "Miss, you dropped something," and offered her what appeared to be a large salt bag. "Miss" blushed a dozen different hues. "That is not mine," Bhe observed. "Oh, but I saw you drop it!" persisted the terrible youth, who at this junoture was yanked aside by his mother. "Johnny, Johnny! How could you," ex claimed tho mother. "Didn't I see It fall," oriod Johnny. "What did she want to lie" "Hush. Johnny, hush! Give it me." Johnny handed the bag over reluctantly and sullenly, and in another moment It was buffeting with the waves. "Miss" continued her journey minus tho bustle. There isa moral to bo drawn from this incident. THE TETER COOPER RESOLUTIONS. They Are In Ha Tils n Frnme thnt They Are Left In City Hall. Tho engrossed resolutions lamonting tho death of Peter Cooper, tho philanthropist, aro still on exhibition in tho Clerk's offlco of tho Board of Aldornien. Tho resolutions are in a frame G foot long by 1 feet wide. Mayor Hewitt and ox-Mayor Coopor, son-in-law nnd sou of tho luto Mr. Cooper, would prefer that tho resolutions should remain where they aro. Mayor Hewitt says that neithor ho nor Mr. Edward Coopor has a parlor largo enough to nccommodate the frame. Tho name of Alderman John O'Neil, now of King Sing, is prominent at the bottom of tho resolutions as Chairman of tho com mittee that drafted thorn. Tho resolutions adopted by the Board of Aldermen of 1883, regretting the dentil of William Saner, who was a member of several preceding Hoards, have never been en grossed, although n committee was empow ered to Reo that tho work was done. Jaehne and O'Neil, tho boodlers, were members of tho committee. The resolutions aro now being finished in handbome stylo, but the boodlers' higuaturcs will not nppear beneath the fancy lettering. The present Hoard has selected n special cominittco to appear as drafters of memorial resolutions adopted four years ago. m BARBERS TO HAVE A CONVENTION. tlreat Ilriieflls Expected If They Unite In One National Organization. A convention of delegates from tho bar. bcrs' unions of the United States and Can. ada is to bo held in Grucner's Hotel, Buffalo, on Deo. 5, for the purpose of organizing a national union. A circular issued by the presidents and sec. retaries of the unions of this city. Toledo, Muskegon, Meriden and Dalian calls upon all the barbers' organizations to send ono delegate for every 300 membors or fraction of that number. The cir cular says that the barbers have learned the benefits resulting from organized effort, and that organization has given them higher wages, and the right to live and board where they please, a'nd lias placed them generally in a better position. Thoy, therefore, believo that much more can bo attained if all tho barbers wero " linked together in one grand national union." The nanio of President Edward Finkel stone, of the Journeymen Barbers' Protec. tio Union, of this city, heads tho list at. tached to the circular. m Tbanksclvlng Diners at the Hotels. flov.

John and Harry Mcech have been connectod with tho theatrical business all their lives, their father boforo them being tho mnnager of the Buffalo Academy of Music, which thoy now manago, and from which thoy havo oc cumulated a fortune Tho Mooch Brothors woro at ono timo mnnagors of Lawrence Bar rott. It was at their theatre that " Anarchy " was produced last year, and that is probably why they have bo much confidence in it. Exactly how many wires were controlled by Manager E. E. Bice yesterday in his ecstatic attempts to keep the Now Yorkers Informed of Dixey's San Francisco success is not known, though that is not Mr. Bice's fault. Dixoy seems to have taken tho town by storm. The advance sales at tho Baldwin, where ho is playing, are oxtremcly large. The predictions were that ho would not make a great success, as most of his " busi. ness" had been done by the farco-comedy companies, who usually pirate os much of other people's work as they pan Illegitimately secure. Dixey's individuality, however, probably made his success. He will remain in San I rancisco for five weoks, and Manogor Haymnns of tho Baldwin Theatre, estimates that $50,000 worth of business will bo dona. Tho receipts for the first night wore 81,000 ; for the second night $1,400. Miss Boso Coghlan is looking for a Now York theatre, which sho is extromoly nnxious to possess.

Shortly boforo Charles Coghlnn snilod for Europe he mot an old English friend on Broadway, whom ho had known years and years aijo in Bristol. Tho two had plnyed at the Bristol Theatre Boyal. Mr. Coghlnn, who assumes tho roles of ardent young lovers on tho stage, paled as he saw this horrible reminder of his ogo walking nlong. " For Heaven's snko. old man," he Bald aftor ho had greeted his old acquaintance, " don't toll tho peoplo out hero how long you'vo known mo." H. Clay Miner's dismissal of tho " Mile, do Bressier " peoplo was very severely criticised by " tho porfosh " yesterday. "It's all very well," said a well-known actor, "for Mr. Miner to assort that tho contract calls for a two weeks' notico and thnt is all. A clause to that effect is on yery, contract, but it is always explained away by managers who do clare that a season under their management cannot last less than thirty weeks. This ' Mile, do Bressier ' collapse reminds mo of 1 Allan Dare's ' sudden termination and of tho ' Silver King ' with Do Bellovillo some time ago." John A. Mackay is preparing for his tour under Leander Richardson's management, which will begin in a few weoks. Both man ager and star feel extremely sanguine. Mr. Mackay has a new play. He did not accent " A Glimpso of Pnradlso," which ho thought unsuitable. The name of his play ho declines to develop at present. ASKING WORK FOR HER BON.

""Commercially the abalone his a double value, first as an article of food and nextosan orna" ment It has been known for a long time,- end far and wide, as a food, "but It li only of late years that Its shell has attalnod a settled market valnc. The Channel Island abalone, called ormer, Is a small fish, not larger than a good-sUed oyster, and Is es teemed something of a delicacy. The maritime negroes of Senegal esteem the abalone an excel lent article of diet, the Now Zt slanders called It "mutton flih," and among the Chinese and Japanese It la much sought after. The manner In nh'ch the two mtions eat the animal Is, however, entirely different. The Japs take only tho very smallest llah and eat them when freshly ranght with uayenne pepper nnd vinegar. 'Ihe Chinese get the lamest possible, and only eat them after ihey have been subjected to a drying process. When the Chinese first came totals coast they found tho shore Ind ans eating the abalone, and recognizing It as highly superior to their own bn leeo they at once set to work catching the flsh. Tho Portuguese also embarked In the fishery, but the Chinese, with their splendid business habits and nulet persistency, soon succeeded In running out ihelr rivals nnd thoy now control the enterprise. The extent of that enterprise Is but little known, nor is it tironoicd to enter Into details on thlsoc caslon. Fleets of schooners are regnlarly employed, and all up and down the coast from Mcndoilno to Acapoloj there uro nahlng villages whose Inhabi tants do little If anrtnlnx else than catch and pre pare the abalone. Bo persevering were thcChlncso ahalone flahcra ut one time that the Mexican (lor ernment, fearing the molluak would be extermi nated, parsed a law forbidding tho catch. Tho oRUUl vigilance has relaxed of late, howertr, and tho fishery ts carried on as vigorously as ever. Sometimes the abalone flehlng villages on the Call fnrnla coast incluue s many as one hundred and ntty people an I the number so occupied altogether muat bo very lame. The nahlng la conducted at low tide, the principal grounds on this coaat being olongr tho Catallna and SAJta ltosa ltlanda, In the Santa Barbara channel, and from Monterey to San Diego, although an Im mense quantity are also taken from Half-moon Bay (whero ihey attain grrat size), and from the rocks that line Mendocino County. The flab, as has neen sal l, fasten thems-lves to the rocks by means of tnelr foot, using it as a snekcr. Just before the tide leaves them on the ebb, and Just after It has reached them on the flow, the abalone keeps his shell partly open, with the foot drawn Into a small space. This Is the fisherman's op portunity. With a Ion, broad knlfo or a spade-like Instrument both arc used he gives a quick lift to the sucker or foot. Tho air Is by this means let In, the suction Is desttoyed, and the fish falls off, n hen It Is seized before It can fasten Itself afresh, and thrown Into a boat or basket. If the rial lira below water a sort of grap pling iron Is let down, and the point being Inserted under the shell a vigorous wrench pulls It away. All this has to bo done quickly and quietly, for If the abalone closes llrmlr on the rock no power ran draw it off, eo great la the power of adhesion, und It will be broken IntofragmcnU before It releases its hold. Occisioun!ly some foolhardy person tries to detach tlie creators when the shell Is ajar by In serting the lingers between that and the rock and then pulling sharply; but it is a very dangerous ex periment, und c.iHci are on record where the ex pcrlmeuter has been held In the fatal grip of tne abalone until drowned by the rising tide. The catch bclnir over, the abaloues are dumped on the beach, und then, with a flat, sharp stick, tho flsh ta pulled from the shell, gutted and stripped of its curtain, boiled. Baited uud strung on long stlcka to dry lu the sun. Tne whole of this process Is an unpleasant one, for tho animal la highlr gelatinous, and the stripping uud gutting are such dirty process s that none but Ctnuameu would undertake them. When properly dried and to be so considered the flsh must bo as hard as sole leather the abaloncs aro p ickcd In sacks nnd sent to China, cither direct In the schooners or from San Francisco. The price of the abalone incut here Is from five cents to eight cents a pound, which means that by the time It reaches the con sumer In China It must be worth from seven cents to ten cents a pound a high price for any Chines article of food. When cooked It Is cut Into strips and boiled, tho taste being a good deal like that of a clam, with, however, more of a meat consist tency. The export figures aro dlfllcult to net at, but ihe trade is certainly considerable. In lsiw there wero exported from San Francisco by steamer 1,691 sacks, valued at $14,440, and In lsoT the ex ports had risen to 8,713 tacts, valued at $33,090. The export to-day amounts to about 200 tons a vear, wnlch, at $17S a ton, would amount to $33,000 a year, a calculation which Is decldedlr below tho mark. Vast quantities of tho dried flsh arc used here In Chinatown and by the Chlnuic all o er the coast. Before the shells wcro fonnd to be of any mar ketable value they were thrown awny, one heap a little to the south of San Diego containing over loo tons of shells. By exposure to the rain and roastln: sun the outside ol this heap has been con verted Into lime, but thla Una been broken Into and some of the loveliest shells have been dug out. Horaeflesli Against etteam. Frtm IS J7nrr Jltpubltemn, The train from the East over the Burlington and Missouri Kallroad had an exciting race with horses near Hudson yesterday afternoon. When the locomotive steamed Into tho Union Depot last even ing It was apparent It had run a-muck of some de scription. Ihe engineer told the story In a graphlo way. Jnst east of Hudson three horses got on the track and commenced running In front of the train. The engineer saw the animals and tooted his whistle. The only effect the alarm had was to start the horses into breakneck speed on trie track. The race was kept up lor half a mile or more, and at first waa quite exciting, as the Iron horse gained rapidly uu the llesh-anu-blood horses, which were straining their utmost to keep ahead. Tho engineer thought, of course, that tho ani mals would have the usual sense of the equine family and spring off the track when the engine came close: but they failed to swene from their mud race, and before he could stop the train tho pilot struck two of them. One was thrown off into udltci and the other one wns thrown up on the pilot and agaltiBt the headlight so that il broke out the glass uud otherwise damuitcd It. The poor am nial was literally knocked to pieces. The train came In without a headlight and the locomotive bore apparent evidences of having ploughed through an abattoir.
